I will be reviewing the album in the next few days, have had it a few weeks now and 'lived with it', even took it on holiday with me to Dorset. This is the sound of summer 2011, it's the soundtrack to driving to the beach! the soundtrack for your bank holiday bar-b-q, to sitting in the garden on a warm summer night, enjoy!
Every now and then a band comes along whose name describes their sound and with THE BRIGHTS that is exactly what you get.After their debut single Footsteps last year caught the attention of XFM's John Kennedy, BBC Radio 2's Janice Long and BBC London's Gary Crowley, Essex Indie/Pop foursome THE BRIGHTS are back with their second single A Cameo Can't Last Forever released on April 18th 2011. Replete with jangly guitars and an instantly memorable harmony this single is the slickest slice of Indie Pop to grace your stereos this spring. Original, up-tempo and with eighties influences ranging from Orange Juice and The Style Council to The Pale Fountains, THE BRIGHTS have been hailed for not sounding like every other indie band out there.
After honing their craft through countless gigs and numerous festival appearances, THE BRIGHTS' line-up, featuring David Burgess (Vocals), James Prudence (Guitar), Mark Newton (Bass) and Matt Humphries (Drums), has seen them share the bill with acts such as The Rifles, Noah And The Whale, Finlay Quaye and These New Puritans to name a few.
2010 has seen the band hard at work writing and recording songs for their debut album A Trivial Pursuit due for release late spring in London's 360 Studios with top producer Fraser Smith (Shed 7, Ian Brown).
The new album "A Trivial Pursuit" will be out june, 13th.
